First things first! I finally got an iPhone AND created a FACEBOOK page. This is a big week in technology for SoCal Runner Gal! CLICK HERE and like SCRG on Facebook.
I actually felt great! I ran my mile repeats at 6:40, 6:40, 6:36, and 6:34. That may not seem very speedy to some, but considering I'm coming back from an injury, I'll take it! The pace never felt too fast or too hard. It was just hard enough. My legs were dripping in sweat when I finished and I felt great. It was like a much needed cleanse after a not-so-great day. Sometimes all you need is a good sweat.
Tonight, I plan to do a very easy 8 mile run and take Holly along for a few of those miles. I live in Golden Hill, a neighborhood with a lot of hills. Shocking, I know. I really need to start utilizing them to my advantage considering Boston is just 2 1/2 months away. Tonight, I shall do that.
I had a tomato, avocado and tempeh sandwich with veganaise (the TLT). It tasted just like I remember a BLT to taste, but better. I enjoyed a side of sweet potato hash and tried a slice of my friend's kale pizza. Everything was delicious. The pizza was covered in kale and garlic, which I loved. I highly recommend this place if you're in the area and don't mind being in Fashion Valley. It's not my favorite place, but it's worth it for the food and the ambiance of this place. There are several other locations, as well. I know there is a restaurant in Santa Monica and Newport Beach, as well as Denver.
